Picket Fences Relay

Create teams, and use as many different colored half cones or poly dots as there are teams. Set the cones/dots side-by-side about 10 feet apart from each other and at least 100 feet from the wall or fence. On the whistle, the first person from each team runs to the wall/fence. Once the first person gets to the wall, s/he puts their hand on it, keeping a space between the wall and his/her body by extending their arm out to touch the wall. They then wave to the next person with their free hand to signal that the next person may now run. The second person in line advances and runs under the first person’s arm (in between the wall and the first person’s body) and then connects to their extended hand on the other side. Once connected, s/he waves to the next person in line with his/her free hand. The third person in line advances and runs in between the first person and the wall, then under and in between the arms of the first and second person, and then connects to the second person’s extended hand. S/he then waves to the next person in line. The race continues with each player running under and in between each students’ arms until the last person on each team is connected to the end of the “picket fence” or “people chain.”
